COLUMBUS– Alexander Joseph Anderson (aka our Superman hero), age 34, passed away on September 1, 2022 as a result of the ravages of Muscular Dystrophy and complications brought on from contracting COVID 19.
Born on May 25, 1988, Alex spent most of his life in the East Liverpool and Wellsville areas earning a GED from East Liverpool High School. Alex was a member of the National and state Muscular Dystrophy Associations, a one time collector of Ty Beanie Babies and an ardent lover of animals. He donated monthly to support animal advocacy groups and was a PROUD fur baby father of several rescued animals which he cared for during his life. Alex was an avid football fan and religiously followed Ohio State University and the Cleveland Browns. He enjoyed watching movies and playing board games with his mother and second dad. One of his favorite pastimes was playing video games with his brothers and many friends who came bearing Bruno’s pizza, Hot Dog Shop, L&B glazed donuts or Chinese food.
Alex was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Joe Anderson; his maternal grandparents, Al and Shirley Green; his cousin, Ryan Virden and his trusty, guard dogs, Stormy and Warlock.
Left to cherish his memory are his devoted mother and life long caregiver, Abby Green Anderson Miller, second dad, Kevin Miller, and third grandmother, Nancy Miller. Other survivors include his father, Joey Anderson; brother, Jacob Anderson and his partner Erynne Hottinger; his brother, Lucas Tyler Anderson; his step mother, Vikki Anderson and step brother, Jeremy Cowan; his maternal grandmother, Edna Steffen Anderson; his best friend, Resden Nixon, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who loved him and share in this devastating loss.
There will be no calling hours. In keeping with Alex’s wishes, his body was donated to science in hopes of finding a cure for MD. In lieu of flowers or other remembrances, the family asks you consider donating to the National Muscular Dystrophy Association or your local animal shelter.
Family and friends are invited to attend a CELEBRATION of ALEX’S LIFE which will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2022 , at 5:00 p.m., at Guilford Lake State Park’s Red Maple Landing area… from Lisbon take Rt 172 to Hanna Drive (Kevin’ Korner Drive-Thru), turn R and follow posted SUPERMAN signs.
